Client Reviews

Daniel was patient, had excellent communication and seemed to really understand me and my concerns for my children and talked me through my many options. He kept me positive but also gave me realistic potential outcomes.I had previously been to see one other law firm where to be honest I felt like I was just a number and being passed done the line as I wasn’t important enough, so to find Daniel and to connect with him was refreshing.
I wish to thank Daniel Loreck of BBV for his outstanding legal expertise provided to me during my recently finalised Family Court property matter. What could have easily become an overwhelming experience, was made easier with Daniel’s ever calm, knowledgeable professionalism. For anyone thinking that standing up to a financial bully in Court is too hard, and feeling as though they have no chance, I say please don’t give up, discuss your options with Daniel. I’m proof that a satisfactory outcome truly is achievable even on a small budget. I am also very pleased to have come through the process with my integrity intact thanks to Daniel consistently side-stepping the ‘game-playing’ and antagonistic behaviour of the other party including their many attempts to financially oppress me within the system.I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
We had already tried so many legal avenues and government departments for nearly 6 years because of our home had not been finished and our Builder closed his company. We originally saw Les Buchbinder, and he said that he can help us, but we had heard that before and just paid money for nothing. We thought we would give it a go, we had nothing to lose. Les was great, always in contact with us, always approachable, always letting us know any updates. Then he also got Thomas involved in our case. Thomas was also wonderful. Couldn’t have asked for a better team. In the end, Les and Thomas got us a fair and good outcome. Their pricing was very good too and up front, so you know what to expect. Nobody else could or would help us, just wanted to drain our savings account, but Les and Thomas actually cared.Thank you Les and Thomas.
Alana Shaddick and her team have made the experience of preparing our Will feel like an empowering achievement rather than an onerous necessity. After meeting with her and discussing our family’s situation in depth, we decided to take additional steps which gave us peace of mind regarding most future situations. As previously mentioned, we viewed the idea of preparing a Will as a necessary step to be done out of a sense of responsibility and assurance to both our daughter and each other. It’s the most logical, adult way to future-proof. We now have a much better understanding of the process and trust that anyone else looking at taking this step can gain that extra level of confidence by working with Alana and the BBV team. We would like to add that the firm’s service and friendliness are top notch, and for a happy and easy-going family who do not respond well to stuffy situations, they were simply amazing.
I can honestly say that in complex commercial litigation matters, David demonstrates an uncanny ability to think clearly, out of the box, and he adopts a pragmatic and very cost-effective approach.

This is especially the case in relation to fixed fee pricing. The other side are having the guts ripped out of them in the most cynical way by their law firm. By contrast, I have known where I stand from the beginning, and this has proven to be a much more satisfactory way of tackling complex corporate legal issues.
David is highly approachable which is important when dealing with lawyers. There are some lawyers who are so far up themselves that you hesitate to call them, but even though

David is a brilliant lawyer, he is also very down to earth.
Les Buchbinder negotiated an unfair dismissal claim for me – he is very good and I would recommend him very highly. He got me an excellent deal. I thought I might have to part with a lot of money, but in the end I parted with none.

He is very good to do business with – he is a quiet man who knows his stuff and very nice to have in your corner.
Kori was a passionate and committed member of the legal representing our company in a major case. She brought a lot of common sense, calm and organised assurance to the team which led to a high degree of comfort in the presentation of our defence. Kori stepped in to cover other team members when required with such an assurance that as the client we had no stress that our case progressed unabated.

Kori helpfully requested anything she required in a clear and concise manner and made a stressful experience, of defending a major case, all the better as a result of her involvement.
I would highly recommend BBV Legal and the services of Les and Alana. Both are not only incredibly good at what they do but also very patient when translating legal jargon into layman's terms.

Alana was the driving force behind a dispute I was faced with and achieved a very positive result for my family.

The team at BBV is approachable, patient and highly efficient. I have nothing but praise for their efforts with my case.
David provided the strategic direction for our defence and pulled together a strong team to present our case. Through all of the challenges presented to us, as the case played out, he remained absolutely focussed on the direction as per the plan. The organisation and presentation of strong and unified team, I believe, had an influence on a good outcome.

David’s input continues to be highly regarded and appreciated on a range of matters. He has a good balance of business common sense approach with what is the likely legal outcome from other approaches. All of which made it easier to make decisions on matters we were not accustomed to.
We decided it was time to review our Wills and related documents. BBV came highly recommended, and we were attracted by the Fixed Price Agreement.
Les & Arfa listened attentively to our wishes as to how the estate would be dealt with after the death of one spouse and then the other and as to whether any changes needed to be made.

As expected, there was a high level of professionalism however the great thing was the ease and simple way each issue was explained by Les & Arfa. We were not rushed. We felt relaxed and were able to discuss the everything at length.

We were happy with all the advice and the overall friendliness of all the staff we came into contact with at BBV plus we were happy with the price!
I recently was the Executor of a family member who passed away recently and I engaged Alana Shaddick of Bowen Buchbinder & Vilensky Lawyers.
The whole process was seamless. No hidden fees, with a fixed price given before engaging them. This gave me a very comforting peace of mind. Whenever I called, Alana was always accommodating, and no query was ever too big or too small. She was always happy to address all my queries and concerns. She also took all the headaches away, by lodging the Probate application.
To be honest, I have dealt with several Lawyers in past years and my impression of Lawyers has not been great. Since working with Alana, my perception has changed. She was a breath of fresh air, and not only that, the various staff members I also encountered were always pleasant, making me feel very comfortable at all times. I have no hesitation in recommending Alana and her team to anyone for the excellent service and honesty. Thank you, Alana.
A big thanks to Daniel Loreck and Karen Gilomen, since court everything has been great and my daughter is progressing amazingly well having both parents in her life.
